1 Answer

Key is turned on SRS and oil light ae on as well as dome light. When I press the brake all of these lights go dim and then bright when I release the brake

I had oil in my #1 spark plug well and car wouldn't start. I changed plugs and replaced valve cover gasket as well as the alternator relay. Car was starting when I got a jump but when the jumper cables were taken of the car would die.

Sounds like either your battery is not good or your alternator is weak.

SOURCE: CHECK ENGINE LIGHT CAME ON

What year is your car and what engine? That makes a lot of difference. What the pulses should indicate is a code 12 is stored (code 55 is usually an "all clear" code, meaning that the ECU is done reading out the codes that are stored). If you got only a 55, it would mean you have no codes. 1255 means that 12 is the only code you have stored.

SOURCE: 96 eclipse need more info..

This sounds like the timing belt is shot. Remove the distributor cap, have your helper crank the engine. Is the rotor turning?? If not, then it is the timing belt. Some engines are rather forgiving when the belt breaks, some will get bent valves. Frankster016

Dash lights wont work when my95 acura is on but i have after market security and that makes them flash when locked or unlocked and it flashs but when car is turned on and lights are turned on the dont work...


there are like 15 lights, idiot lights and park/dim.
are all idiot lamps out, or just the parkings.
like CEL, Charge, Oil, Brake,
if the main warning lights are all out, key on, and engine runs
and head lights are full bright.
then you blew a fuse, as always, check fuses first.

Wiring problem-between motor and starter


You need to post more about this problem. Answer some of these questions and provide the brand of Vehicle and Model.
1. Is there a click when you turn the key to start?
2. Are the lights and controls bright or do they dim significantly when you turn the key to start?
3. Will the Brake lights come on when the Brake is pressed. If no, check under the dash at the switch on the upper Brake pedal lever. If broken or loose, service until the Brake lights start working.
4. Include this info and consider reposting the request with the new info.

'99 Expedition brake lights aren't turning on when pressing brake


It could be a number of things, the good news is that none of them are serious or expensive to fix.

The normal components that make up your brake circut are:

1. The brake light fuse (In the fuse box and labeled as such)
2. The brake light switch/relay - also called a stop light switch. It's under the dash, right behind the brake pedal arm. When you push the brake, it sends a signal to the lights which turns them on. Think of the dome light switch in the door jam of your truck. When you open the door, it releases the switch and your dome light pops on. Same thing with the brake light switch.
3. The bulbs in the tail lights and the 3rd brake light.
If none of them are working, it's most likely a fuse or the switch/relay under the dash. If it's the switch, it's a $12 part. Obviously fuses are only a couple bucks.

I have a 2010 Acadia, the interior lights do not come on when I open the door. I have pushed the dome light button in and have left the button out still no lights when I open the door. Any suggestions?


Next to the round exterior light switch is a switch that controls the brightness of the interior dome lights. You can push (detent) that button in and it will pop out to make it easier to brighten/dim those lights. The tricky part is that the switch for making the dome lights illuminate when you enter/exit the vehicle is actually the top half of the backplate of the dome brightness switch. It says "dome off" on the upper portion of the backplate. That one inch area - that barely depresses - is actually the switch to make the dome lights work with the door operation. Try pressing it and then opening your door. It should work. Good Luck!

How do you reset the Service light on 2006 BMW 325 xi, it stated service was due for brake fluid flush, we did that but the service indicator is still on


Hi , to reset the service light you will need to insert the key and turn the ignition lights on but do not start the engine. you will see a push button on the lower left side of the instrument panel press and hold this until you have a triangle appear which then turns to the brake warning symbol , release the push button then press and hold the bc button in the indicator arm until reset appears , release and again press and hold the bc button until you have a moving clock symbol appear , release the bc button and wait for the display to change , once this has reset turn off the ignition and the service symbol should have reset . you may want to print these instructions before resetting , regards Mark.

Reset maintenance light


If I remember correctly, on the dash you have a select button. Hold the button down then turn the key on, until the maintenance light blinks and goes out. Turn the key off then back on and your light should be out.

Right tail light not working when pressing brake w/ lights on.


There should be at least 2 bulbs in the light assembly. One light is the light that is on when you turn on your headlights with out the brake pressed, the other light only lights up while you press on the brake. Make sure you are replacing the correct bulb. You may have been replacing the bulb that stays on. Your lights may be set up to turn off the light that stays on when the headlights are on while pressing the brakes.
